Hello Muzzaky, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Indonesia is one of the countries affected by covid-19 infection. The panic arises from the people, especially those who live in areas affected by the plague. Transmission of these infections is through droplet / sprinkling of saliva so that the infection continues to spread.
Signs and symptoms of covid-19 infection are fever> 38,5'C, cough, and shortness of breath. However, it does not rule out other symptoms that may occur such as dizziness, flu-like symptoms, or even asymptomatic despite co-19 infection. This occurs due to research, covid-19 symptoms appear within 2 days to 2 weeks after exposure to the Corona virus (incubation period).
Responding to complaints that you feel, I can not be certain with certainty that the infection is co-19 or not, therefore the current recommendation from the government is to remain silent at home. It aims to break the chain of transmission of the virus, so that people who are infected do not spread the virus, and healthy people or immunity is not transmitted. Some of the diseases that you might experience right now are:
For you some of the things you can do right now are:
Based on the signs and symptoms that you feel, it does not support the existence of covid-19 infection, but you still need to be vigilant and do "self isolating" or quarantine independently.
Evaluate complaints that you experience, if there is worsening such as high fever, cough, accompanied by shortness of breath immediately to the hospital.
Use a mask for now.
Get enough rest, and eat nutritious food to increase your immunity.
Wash hands before and after carrying out activities.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
